I think I have to take the mobo/heat sink out of the case, though. The extension cable doesn't hold together and then the 8-pin becomes a dual 4-pin! UGH! I am trying to line up to the connector but the corner of the heat sink is obstructing my path a bit.
I am inquiring about upgrading to a cheap Sandybridge system, too.
I thought min. i3-2100T is as good, generally, as the Q6600 but a dual core. It's faster in most applications especially those only needing two cores.
I need to find out if I should get a decent mobo and then the cheap i3 cpu so I can buy another high end cpu later if I really want to. Or?????
At any rate, I am considering removing the mobo/heat sink out of the case and then I can re-do the fan attachment.... I could even take pictures and put 'em in an ad! LOL!
If only I could buy A SECOND SYSTEM! WOULD BE SO MUCH EASIER!
